Learn from my mistake, or dont...
    #4011942 - 04/04/05 10:02 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Just a few suggestions ( for teh n00bs ) I can offer from my horrible failure at growing.
A) if its your first time, or your trying a new technique and spore syringes are hard to come by ( or money is tight )  Use 1cc to knock up a jar of liquid substrate.  I live in Ca, not only is it hard to acquire a spore syringe here, its illegal, no ups for me =/. 
B) Don't be an idiot, acquire your heating/grow gear BEFORE your syringe/print arrives in the mail. Put a saucer or bowl of water in front of/by/in your heater check on it the next day, ensure that your not going to dry out your cakes. 
C) Get a thermometer from your store, I recommend one w/ a probe, ( I use a digi that has a probe on a 10ft wire so I can check the temp with out disturbing my grow area ) Ensure that the temp is adequate for at least 24 hours before you get your spores/put your knocked up cakes by the heater.  I did not and the temp on the first night reached 110 degs F.
D) Label your jars, This helps a lot w/ trying to figure out how they got contaminated, assuming the worst. 

Just some things I have encountered on my first attempt at growing. I must now forage out in to the wild and hunt the elusive mushroom in its native habitat, in order to make another syringe. * This requires a road trip of some 6-8 hours to get to Nor Cal * ...The things we do for what we love.

Those of you with other tips and or tricks please add on,  :smile:

So true & you see it all the time. Many many young & impatiant newbies do not get the ducks in a row, BEFORE HAND.

Then, when print or syringes arrive do some pretty off the wall things with them, that have no chance of working.

Mush/Cult is much like cooking. Without the proper recipe, ingrediants, utensils, impliments & space it is difficult to cook a decent meal.

Without proper knowledge & things Mush/Cult requires, the result is a lot of wasted effort, time, material & work.... for NADA

I found it useful for my "first" (concerted effort) grow to write down a detailed grow log. This way you can narrow down the variables if you get poor or unexpected results (or great results), and it provides you with useful information for the future.

But, hey - if we never made mistakes, we'd never accumulate as much tangible knowledge.

Assuming I can come by spores again, I will hopefully be setting a webcam on one of the jars to make a time lapse video of its growth. Just a dream.
That and make a LOT of liquid substraint and knock-it-up.

Thanks to all the info on the shromery, and my boyfriends help, I have had a successful first grow! It pays to have patience and do things right the first time. :flowers:

I hate to argue w/ you pawpaw, especially because I'm afraid of what picture you will retort with *wink* however... I could read all of the articles here ( again ) and do everything picture perfect and... I still wouldn't have a decent first grow. This is only because my first grow was utter poop.  :laugh:

Youre not paying attention or comprehending what you are reading...
My first grow was a perfect casing ...(Props to Roadkill}
I also had a shitload of pf-tek cakes that did pretty damn good
